Course Title: 418 Cases in Neurology c137 A published Case of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Course Instructor: Joseph S. Ferezy, DC
CE: One (1) Classroom Hours
This case involves a serious and longstanding case of carpal tunnel syndrome. The patient initially presented to the Dr. of chiropractic, who then refered the patient to a medical neurologist and ultimately for electrodiagnostic testing. The result of electrodiagnostic testing suggested that the patient should have an urgent carpal tunnel release surgery. However, since the patient was improving the treating chiropractor referred the patient to a chiropractic neurologist, Dr. Ferezy, for a second opinion. A follow-up electrodiagnostic report showed considerable improvement and surgery for the patient was canceled. This case was published in the Journal of Chiropractic Technique. It demonstrates that even serious and longstanding cases of carpal tunnel syndrome can be effectively managed using conservative chiropractic therapy.
Upon completion of this class the viewer should be able to:
Describe in detail the anatomy of the carpal tunnel and anatomical course of the median nerve.
